Magic Mushrooms and AOC, JRP0151

August 17, 2020

We take a look at the fascinating 60 Minutes piece on the benefits of magic mushrooms that help people overcome depression, anxiety, and addiction.  I share my thoughts on how these patients are using these drugs to help quiet the mind while I am pursuing the same outcome through journaling and solitude.  I also discuss my love/hate relationship with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.


We also discuss a range of other people and places including Timothy Leary, Richard Nixon, War on Drugs, San Diego Padres, Fernando Tatis Jr, Zach Davies, Tommy Pham, Wil Myers, Kirby Yates, Francisco Mejia, Democratic Convention, Joe Biden, AOC, Pahrump, Fortress of Solitude, Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, Boston Celtics, San Diego Chargers, Postal Annex, Nick Neild, Pete Neild, Frank Fournier, Caylin Frank, Chris Olps, Poway, Death Valley, Furnace Creek, Victoria, Amazon Prime, Cary Grant, Steve Jobs, George Carlin
